Principles document coming together

Got started on a plain statement of our principles, arising out of what we've learned, which may form the basis of our white-or-not-paper. Lots of input from various people, and it's beginning to take shape.

Keywords for JM interview

Did the keywords for the second of my assigned interviews; also noticed a common tendency to include leading or trailing spaces in name elements, so I added a Schematron rule for that, and fixed all existing instances.

First pass through interview for topics

Went through the first interview assigned to me and added topics in the keywords section of the header. Also added the required components for this to the schema, and handling for them in the Author Mode CSS. Then helped EC merge conflicting versions after we both edited the same file at the same time.

Graves: working on Solr search

I'd given BJ the wrong ip for the server to connect to Solr, so I wasn't able to get anything to work. That's now fixed, and I'm able to issue queries from the server using GET and get useful responses as expected. I still have a lot of work to do on the XQuery library for eXist to do this, though; it complains about the URL I'm contacting being invalid -- it has complicated query-string components that need escaping in various ways, and I haven't yet figured out the right combinations and escape mechanisms to get it working. Slow but steady progress.

HTML diagnostics

Worked on the HTML diagnostics more, adding some documentation and rationalizing. Ran it against Graves and fixed the error; ran it against the MoEML and talked with MH about the errors.

HTML Diagnostics

In preparation for the upcoming MoEML build, and for future projects, I started working on an HTML diagnostics to test to check for referential integrity in the generated HTML. Spent the entire day working on this with some good results. There are two major issues, however. The first is that we can't use doc-available in most of the Endings projects since the document collections are too big and the doc-available function stores the file in memory. Got a work around for that and I now have a version that works in XSLT 2.0 and pure ant that can run against MoEML in about 5 minutes (when given nearly 3GB of RAM).

I would also like to experiment with a XSLT 3.0/XPath 3.0/Saxon EE version of this that uses the EXSLT extension and the file functions. I think these would be more efficient and more accurate than what I'm doing now, but has the downside of not being usable on remote build servers. If we decide to package this with the other diagnostics suite, then we should really have both versions.
